In one of the Facebook recruiting groups, someone asked a simple question. “If all of the tools and extensions you use break, what are you going to do?” The answer that members most responded with was, “Use a Boolean search.” But where do you go if you have no idea how to write a Boolean search string. Of course, we have lots of resources here on, but SocialTalent has a great resource called SourceHub. All you have to do to use it is input the job title, skills, and location and it will write a Boolean string you can use to start your search. Click here to give SourcceHub a try for yourself.
